Our Spring Term Topic - Evolution and Charles Darwin
I'm a Year 6, Get me Out of Here!
This term, we will be learning all about Charles Darwin and how he changed science forever. We will study his life and where he travelled. Throughout this, we will look at the journey he took around the world especially looking in depth at the Galapagos Islands where he carried out most of his research.
In Science, we will look at evolution and animal adaption and what this actually means. The children will study different animals and observe different fossils to figure out how animals have changed over time. We will find out it is all to do with the environment they live in and natural selection.
Our class novel
Stanley Yelnats' family has a history of bad luck going back generations, so he is not too surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to Camp Green Lake Juvenile Detention Centre. Nor is he very surprised when he is told that his daily labour at the camp is to dig a hole, five foot wide by five foot deep, and report anything that he finds in that hole. The warden claims that it is character building, but this is a lie and Stanley must dig up the truth. In this wonderfully inventive, compelling novel that is both serious and funny, Louis Sachar has created a masterpiece that will leave all readers amazed and delighted by the author's narrative flair and brilliantly handled plot.
This term, Year 6 have been looking at the novel Holes, especially the characters within it! We have inferred what each character feels like in the different chapters and found evidence for this in the text. We have also looked a lot at how the author creates humour and engagement for the reader.
Our PE day is Friday! Please make sure that your child has their PE kit on this day. Not sure about what they can wear? See below.
During Summer months:
Children are asked to wear black shorts and a white t-shirt. As most of the PE sessions will be outside, children will also need a change of footwear. Children should wear either trainers or pumps.
During Winter months:
Children are asked to wear tracksuit bottoms (black or grey) and a white t-shirt. Some PE lessons will be taught inside, so children should also bring shorts.
